"Murray was extremely thorough and helpful with a clock my grandfather bought in 1939 and I inherited. I was in for a consult on the cleaning and refurbishment of the clock. He knows clicks!"

"I brought a grandfather clock in for repair today. Murray was able to evaluate the clock and repair it while showing me what he was doing and he answered all of my questions. The clock is now home and running perfectly. I highly recommend National Clock Repair."
